The Air Force Official Memorandum is the most common letter format used for written communications in the Air Force. It's used for a variety of purposes from documenting internal squadron policies to conducting official business with DoD agencies including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, unified and specified commands, and other Federal agencies. It's also used to conduct business with vendors and contractors.

Use printed letterhead, computer-generated letterhead, or plain bond paper. The writer decides which stationery is appropriate. Type or print on both sides of the paper using black or blue-black ink. Use 10 to 12 point fonts for text.

For more information, see the example to the left, and refer to AFM 33-326, Preparing Official Communications, Chap 3.
